Built for family first.

The Austin Air Healthmate was born out of necessity as President, Richard Taylor, undertook the task of improving what many doctors and specialists couldn’t; his wife’s quality of life.

Since his wife, Joyce, was a child, she had difficulty breathing. An endless round of doctors and specialists didn't make any difference; neither did medications or dietary changes. She suffered from this debilitating condition for years, until Richard realized the obvious. The air Joyce was breathing was contaminated.

Drawing upon technology used in medical facilities, Richard reproduced the only environment where Joyce had relief of her symptoms, “the hospital clean room”. Using True Medical HEPA, surrounded with Activated Carbon he created a filter that addressed all the issues related to environmental particulate contamination and chemical toxicity. Within a week Joyce was finally sleeping undisturbed through the night.

Today, at 480,000 square feet Austin has the largest air cleaner manufacturing facility in the world, producing everything in house from filter, to metal forming, to the final paint.

Austin air is extremely proud that the Healthmate is the air cleaner of choice by leading doctors throughout the United States and many other parts of the world. As a matter of fact, there is hardly a country in the world today, where an Austin Air cleaner is not hard at work cleaning the air in someone's home.

   

Integrity in Construction

The Body
Austin Air produces all of its products with solid steel construction and non-toxic powder coated paint for strength, reliability and longevity.

The Filter
Austin Air incorporates the only trusted air filtering technology used in hospitals and operating rooms. For a filter to be effective, gases and sub-micron particles must be removed from the air. That’s why you’ll find True Medical Grade HEPA and Activated Carbon in every Austin Air filter.

True HEPA
The True HEPA filter was developed by the Atomic Energy Commission specifically to protect the Human Respiratory System (nose, mouth, throat, lungs) from radioactive dust particles. Austin Air takes it a step further, incorporating True Medical Grade HEPA with 99.97% efficiency down to 0.3 microns and 95% efficiency down to 0.1 microns. True Medical Grade HEPA is the most efficient particulate filtering media on the market.

Activated Carbon
Activated Carbon is used to remove Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s); noxious gases and chemicals.

The result is nothing but clean air.

 

Powder Coated - Not Painted

Austin Air cleaners are powder coated not painted. This gives the products an unsurpassed finish without the harmful off gassing that painted products can produce. In fact you will find that the control knob, wheels and fan are the only plastic components we use. This is great news for the chemically sensitive. We feel that a machine that offers relief to allergy and asthma sufferers shouldn't contribute to the problem.

Designed from the inside out.

The engineers at Austin Air concentrated on developing the most critical component of the air cleaner first; the filter.

Austin Air’s 360-degree intake system draws air into all sides of the air cleaner, maximizing efficiency and delivering more clean air faster.

Every minute, 250 cubic feet of air is processed by a 4-stage filter that progressively removes contaminants out of the air.

This process enables Austin Air cleaners to:

  • Achieve the highest levels of performance.
  • Attain superior air flow rates.
  • Sustain a longer filter life (5-years under normal residential use).
  • Increase the life expectantly of the Medical Grade HEPA, the most critical media in the filtration process.

Integrity in Business

Austin Air has made a conscious decision to keep Americans employed by keeping their manufacturing facility in the United States. We feel that every company has an obligation to carefully examine the social, economic and moral costs of sending jobs offshore. At Austin Air we believe that American workers still build the best products, that corporations can still make a healthy profit manufacturing in the United States and that the benefits of staying in America far outweigh the costs.

When a company chooses to go offshore to manufacture a product, they are motivated by one thing…greed. As a result, our economy suffers through lost jobs and money, and the American consumer is short changed. The benefits of these corporate cost savings are rarely passed on to the consumer and the product is now of a lesser quality. If this were not true, your running shoes would last 5 times longer and would never cost over $50 a pair. The next time you buy a product made in China, ask yourself, “Why is this costing as much as it did when it was made in the USA and how is this country going to prosper when our own corporations have no loyalty to us?”

After pioneering and leading the air cleaning industry for more than 15 years, Austin Air maintains the largest air cleaner manufacturing facility in the world, manufacturing everything in-house. From the filter, to metal forming, to powdercoating, to final assembly, every Austin Air cleaner is proudly made in the USA.
